KATHMANDU, March 27: The Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) has proposed the International Cricket Council (ICC) to convene the Special General Assembly in Kathmandu in third the week of April.
The working committee meeting of the elected CAN on Monday concluded that April 26 and 27 can be appropriate dates for the Special General Assembly.
The ICC had suspended the CAN’s membership a year ago after the CAN couldn’t carry out even its regular functions due to internal disputes, political interference and allegations of irregularities. Then, the ICC had started overseeing cricketing activities in Nepal as the CAN turned into an non-functioning body.
The ICC, trying to settle the disputes in Nepali cricket, had directed a committee that was tasked to conduct election of CAN office bearers to call the Special General Assembly in March and to endorse the amended statute draft without any change. The advisory committee of CAN that drafted the statute amendments was led by the former President Binay Raj Pandey, President Chatur Bahadur Chand and General Secretary Ashok Nath Pyakurel.
Earlier the ICC had asked the advisory committee to settle the disputes and convene the Special General Assembly by March.
“We have proposed the ICC to convene the Assembly in April and we have also informed the international body about the status of general assembly members and some other issues,” said a working committee member of the CAN.
